Six Strategies to Avoid Time in the Dental Chair

While we love seeing our patients, we don’t want to see them more than we have to. In other words, our goal is to help you maintain your oral health with routine preventative care so that you don’t have to come back for unscheduled visits. While professional cleanings and exams can go a long way in protecting the health of your smile, these visits only occur twice out of the entire year. What you do the other 363 days can be the deciding factor in whether or not you avoid dental treatments such as cavity repair, gum disease therapy, root canals and other restorative procedures.

Your teeth are among the most important structures in your body. The mouth is the gateway for bacteria to enter your body and the teeth are a necessity for chewing, speaking and other important functions. Taking care of your teeth, therefore, should take priority. Are you making your dental health a priority?

By practicing proper habits for a healthy mouth at home, you can prevent the development of various dental problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. While there are many oral habits to follow (or stay away from), here are some of the most important strategies for optimal smile health.

To avoid time in the dental chair this year, make sure you are participating in the following:

At Manhattan Dental Design, we understand the importance of taking care of your teeth and gums through all stages of life. We are equipped to not only help you prevent costly dental treatments, but also repair and restore your teeth if the time comes. Avoiding time in the dental chair does not mean neglecting the dentist when you are suffering from dental pain. Dental problems that go untreated almost always progress into worsening discomfort and lead to more invasive treatment.
